Sandyport Beach Resort

Reviewed April 21, 2014

Four of us just came back from Sandyport and each one of us had an excellent time!
We have been going to Sandyport Beaches off and on for the past 20 years as it is our "home" timeshare resort. It has gone through some up and downs with previous management but we are pleased that they are putting significant improvements and much needed upgrades into the resort. We just returned from enjoying one week in a two bedroom (A and C unit). It was clean and well stocked. We were on the second floor of the two story unit which suited us perfectly.

The two bedroom unit consists of a master bedroom with king size bed, jacuzzi, double sink and bathroom with shower. The kitchen in this particular unit had been renovated to include stainless steel fridge, stove and microwave and granite counter. The second bedroom had two queen beds and a bathroom. Plus we had a two piece bathroom off the living/dining room. We had a lagoon / canal facing balcony where we had our morning coffee as the sun rose and then a glass of wine as the sun set. Typically in a time share one doesn't get daily maid service and often it doesn't happen at all at other resorts I've stayed in so it was nice to have our towels refreshed twice while there.

The lagoon beach/pools never seemed crowded and we were always able to get four chairs. We really enjoyed ordering our dinner from Kendra (Chef Cleveland's replacement for the week while he was on vacation) -- she went after lunch to purchase the groceries for whatever we ordered and then she cooked it up and served it outside the beach bar on the sandy shore of the lagoon at night. The four of us enjoyed the conch fritters appetizer and then fresh fish, peas and rice and salad with our bottles of wine! We also ate at the Twisted Lime, Netties and Spritz all a short walk from the resort. Getting to town on the jitney (local bus) cost of $1.25 each and provided a lot of fun. Just be careful to check BOTH ways when crossing the streets since they drive on the opposite side of the road compared to us in North America! A visit to the Fish Fry is a must. We went for lunch and it was quiet but at night the place is apparently hopping! For $5.00 I could order a dozen conch fritters.

My sister and brother in law attended the beach BBQ one evening and they really enjoyed the food. We're on a vacation and try to kick back so we're OK with the pace of service and doing things on Bahamian time.... so we were OK with the sometimes slow service or late starts to some of the scheduled events (i.e. breakfast omelette station not opened on Sunday at 8:00 a.m. as mentioned or the noon Good Friday lunch which started several hours later).

Lady Sarah, Brigitte Fernades - head housekeeper , and the rest of the staff of Sandyport bend over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed.I called over for a few items such a dishwasher soap and dish towels and they were delivered that same afternoon.

There is a very short walk to the beach which never seems crowded either. There is a lot of seaweed and refuse brought in by the tide and it would be nice if it was raked a couple of times of the day to make it cleaner but we still enjoyed our solitude with the waves and watching the cruise ships come and go. There are lounge chairs by the Beach Club restaurant which is currently undergoing renovations and will hopefully open by September. We really missed going there for our pizza meal and beautiful views.
Since we came in with the rest of the 'Saturday to Saturday" time share folks we were able to attend the Orientation meeting on Sunday morning and then take the shuttle bus to the local grocery store to stock our cupboards for the week. We tried to eat most breakfasts and lunches in the suite but did have omelettes at Da Hot Spot (pool side bar area) one morning and lots of conch fritters, fish fries for lunch.
There seems to be a lot more staff on the grounds, painting, raking, pruning etc and staff talk about further improvements to the units.
The on-site activities are basically non-existent but if you're looking for quiet and solitude with the ability to take a jitney or taxi to Cable Beach to the casino or downtown or Paradise Island for the more exciting entertainment and activities then this is the place to be!
We really like the laid back quiet and leave when we want more excitement. With Bahamar opening at Cable Beach in Dec 2014 the options will even be more exciting.
It was a great vacation. We came back rested and tanned!

We stayed at the Sandyport Beaches Resort for 2 nights. This was our first time at the Bahamas with our 4 children. We could've have asked for a better spot to bring our family. Everyone was so kind, friendly and helpful in every way, which made getting around much easier. Our suite had two bedrooms and a small kitchen. This made it very convenient since we were able to shop at a local grocery store and have snacks and drinks handy for the kids. Our kids especially loved the pool and playing with the sand and laying on the hammocks in the mornings and in the evenings. One night the hotel hosted a small BBQ right by the pool. The prices were reasonable and the food was great.

We will definitely be back and will recommend to friends and family! Thanks to all the staff for making us feel at home!

I spent 2 relaxing weeks with my cousin as a getaway from the cold weather in Canada. My stay at Sandyport was memorable due to the service received from staff. The staff was very friendly, kind and generous. Cincinetti Hall went out of her way to accommodate us on many occasions. She told us where to go for shopping, etc. Lady Sarah told us where to find local meals, beaches, etc. The resort was well maintained, quite and laid back. My suite was immaculate. The rooms were cleaned. These 2 ladies made my stay a memorable one! I can't wait to return.

After reading the other reviews, I feel like we were at an entirely different place. We arrived on a Monday afternoon and received no welcome. After standing at the desk waiting to be acknowledged, the clerk asked for our credit card and a photo ID. We were informed that we owed an additional $136 beyond the prepaid amount of $1,200+ we paid online for 4 nights. ~ for "energy and maid service" charges were $12.50 pp per day energy/ and $5 pp maid. No one told us ANYTHING about the property, no map, services etc. She walked us to the front door and pointed across the parking lot saying: "You are in the yellow building down the walk past the fence".~ No help with luggage etc. In fact, she sent us to the wrong building. We were regretting our choice from the moment we arrived. Our room was newly painted but had a very old uncomfortable sofa/chair with torn cushions. Jetted tub had melted holes in it and the shower and refrigerator leaked puddles of water. The hotel information book was outdated and of no value. The room safe is not attached to anything so it could just be carried off! The pool had seagulls bathing and pooping in it and visable chunks of debris on the bottom. The kiddie pool had lots algae growing in it. The Beach Club is closed for renovations we discovered when looking for a place to eat. So we went to the lobby desk the following day to ask about places to eat etc. and the clerk pointed to a binder on a table and said "they're in the book" . Honestly, it was that bad. We were not rude or demanding, and we never complained about any of the issues mentioned regarding our room or the pool. Seagulls rule the cove beach screeching from dawn till dark. We had to keep the air on and windows closed to lessen the noise. (We were told they are there till Sept.) Forget about sitting on the cove beach ~it was deafening. The ocean beach across the street was littered with broken glass and empty beer bottles.... Not like any resort we have ever booked.

I stayed at this resort for 4 weeks while waiting on a permanent apartment to become available elsewhere for my relocation to the Bahamas. Even though my stay was business-related, the resort is extremely relaxing, the room and facilities in good condition and the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and quick to respond to my requests. I am a firm believer that the people make the place and the staff here at all levels certainly do just that. They really made me feel welcome and I would recommend this resort to anyone who is visiting Nassau, Bahamas.

We had an amazing time at Sandyport. The staff was very friendly and Lady Sarah helped book all our activities. Our kids really enjoyed the pools, beaches, and slides. Chef Cleveland made some great meals as well. We wish we had stayed our second week there as well. Sandyport is much more relaxing and the service much better than the Melia. It is also very close to some great restaurants and stores.

We have been traveling to Sandyport as a family for 4 years now and every year is better than the last. I can't believe the changes that have taken place over this time. Renovated rooms and kitchens with new appliances, much improved grounds keeping, fresh paint every where, including the tennis and basketball courts, new restaurants, new tours, new lounge chairs and hammocks, and best of all an upgraded beach bar.

As always, the people at Sandyport are extremely nice. Always making sure the you are having a good time and that your needs are met. My family has come to know the staff quite well and we now consider them our second family. We keep in touch throughout the year and it truly is a highlight of our year to return to Sandyport.

If you are looking for a quiet paradise that is still close to all island activities then look no further.

Room Tip: Upper floor suites along the waterway. Great views as you watch the boats go by.
